Dolemite Is My Name (Director Q&A)

Just added! Director Craig Brewer will join us IN PERSON, schedule permitting, for a Q&A moderated by screenwriter Scott Alexander following the 5:00pm screening of the film on Saturday, October 12th.

The real-life exploits of comedian, rap pioneer, and Blaxploitation icon Rudy Ray Moore form the basis of the funky bio-pic Dolemite Is My Name from screenwriters Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski. Eddie Murphy brings the hard-hustling, braggadocious, and perhaps slightly delusional entertainer, as well as his superfly kung-fu pimp alter ego Dolemite, to the big screen in a loving, electrifying performance. A long overdue celebration of Moore and his legacy, the film is about as boastful as the man himself, reveling in the flashy exuberance of black life in the 70’s. Moore and his character would go on to influence a generation of black entertainers from Eddie Murphy to Snoop Dogg.

“As its title character might put it, Dolemite Is My Name is a total motherf-kin’ blast.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“Murphy summons the live-wire energy that once made him the biggest name in stand-up and guaranteed money in the bank for studio comedy vehicles. It’s good to have him back.” – Charles Bramesco, Little White Lies

“Combined with the splashy editing and hilarious dialogue, the high-volume period setting captures the essence of how Dolemite Is My Name wants to portray Rudy Ray Moore as a person.” – Katie Rife, AV Club
